Golden Globe winner Gabriel Byrne plays Earl Haraldson, the ruler of the county. Byrne has a long acting carreer and has appeared in Excalibur, The Usual Suspects, Enemy of the State, assualt on Precint 13, In Treatment, Secret State and Quirke to name a few. Earl Haraldson doesn’t appear to be based on one specific historical character. There are several Haraldson’s throughout history, which one, if any, Byrne’s character is based on is hard to guess.
